Q: Hello,

Thank you for all you do.

For a 5-10 yr hold, could you rank the above on total shareholder return vs risk (I am thinking debt exposure/interest rate risk), but there may be others.

Thank you

Q: Hi Peter, I have about 15000.00 for an RRSP account. I know you can't personalize the account but could you suggest 5 - 10 good Canadian stocks for such an account if looking for income for a 66 year old investor. Thanks

Q: Hi,
Today (April 04) you answered Jacques' question by suggesting a switch from EMA to FTS. Would you suggest the same for BEPC/and H? I am trying to "replicate" the performance of an ETF by holding some of the utility companies. Hence this question.

Q: I'd like to invest a substantial inheritance in solid, relatively safe dividend stocks in a non-registered account for a stream of tax-efficient income. Can you suggest 7-8 stocks for me to consider and do you consider that number enough for diversification? Would you buy in gradually over the year or invest all at once? Is it unwise to invest in Canadian stocks only ( have geographic diversification in my registered accounts)? I won't need the income for 2-3 years and will probably hang on to them for life, whatever that may be (I'm in my late 50s). Thanks. I have tons of credits - use as many as needed.

Q: Thank you for your answer to my earlier question. I just want to clarify. I had asked for current dividend growth ideas for a long term hold. In your answer you mentioned “high dividend”…same suggestions or a little different? Thanks again!

Q: Can you please share your favourite Cdn dividend growth stocks for long term hold in a non-registered account.

Q: You responded to a March 21st question by Esther confirming that, in your view, Canadian rates are fully expected to drop faster, sooner than US interest rates - leaving a positive outlook for the US$ and stocks.

My question is in 2 parts;

- What are 3 interest sensitive Canadian investments would you recommend that take advantage of a faster/sooner drop in Canadian rates (and why they may be good investments), and

- Should one hold off on investing in US investments such as TLT short term, or not try too hard to time the buy and invest now?

Thanks as always.

Q: Hi
Accumulated these utilities as part of my non-correlated asset mix. BEPC has been the worst performer. Down 16%. Hydro One is the best performer so far. Up 6%. EMA/FTS are nearly neutral.
I followed your pragmatic and practical suggestions and took only a partial position in each of these stocks.

Time to add ? In what order would you add? My plan is to add equal amounts.
Many thanks.

Q: Recently retired and looking for growth and income and looking for suggestions with FTS. Have owned for 5 years and currently up 10.48 % over that time. One of my weakest performers in my rrsp. What would you do with this? Sell outright and replace with? I’m considering H as I own both and H has outperformed with 69.86% over the same time period. Which would you prefer for the next 5 years? H? FTS? ( is there hope for FTS) or something else and which would be buyable today?
Thanks for all your guidance

Q: Hello Peter,
What is happening to Ivanhoe electric? It is on a downward trend. I am thinking of selling my toi, and lmn, to invest in CSU as everyday i see csu ticking higher. Does this strategy makes sense? Also, with nice dividend history of fortis, why is it still so low whereas hydro one seems to be ticking higher. thanks very much

Q: Good afternoon,

Looking for a list of companies with safe , growing dividends and potential for some capital gain - Cdn or American.

Thank you,

Q: Hi Team,
could you rate these companies for a 3-5 years horizon considering I am looking for income and capital preservation but a bit of capital growth would also be good...

Thank you

Q: In your opinion, is it worth holding on to AQN for the potential benefits of it's renewable business sale/split (and whatever other news follows), or sell now and invest in to companies with more proven management and stability e.g. I'd be putting the proceeds mainly in to BNS and TD.
